If I extol You in worship for a little while, will that cause any degradation to me?

piththAki uruki venthu aRak kAnil maRavar kunRinil pOna perumALE.: Your heart melting in a mad obsession and being scorched by the excessive heat, You reached out for the mountain (VaLLimalai) where the hunters resided, Oh Great One!
